MMS AUGUST 2018 296 IMTS 2018 Miscellaneous Equipment Parts Accumulator Enables Unattended Operation Tecnara's Super Ario compact, portable automatic parts accumulator is designed for Swiss-type lathes and small, standard CNC lathes. The accumulator does not require a special interface with the machine and can operate unat- tended for many hours, the company says. For additional protection, the parts tray can be filled with washing fluid to remove oil and prevent damage from abrasion. The accumulator is designed to be easy to set up and operate. It is placed to enable the machine's emit- ter belt to feed the workpiece onto the collection ramp. The piece slides down the ramp onto the center of the receptacle tray. As the turntable rotates clockwise, the workpiece is moved from the center of the tray to the perimeter, providing space for the next piece. This process repeats until the end of the run. When the tray is filled with rinsing fluid, each workpiece is rinsed and cleaned. This also removes any chips or debris from the receiving area. When workpieces fill the receptacle tray, they are manually replaced with another tray and the run continues. Unat- tended run length depends on workpiece size, process- ing time and the holding capacity of the receptacle tray. The rotation speed can be set to accommodate the job's production rate. Four Super Ario models accommodate a range of workpiece sizes, work- emitter heights, production rates and run durations. For high-output applications, the large flat-type 700 recep- tacle tray holds twice as many parts as the standard SPA500 tray. | Tecnara Tooling Systems Inc. | West, Level 3, Booth 432071 Leistritz Advanced Technologies Corp. 165 Chestnut Street, Allendale, NJ 07401 • 201 934-8262 • Leistritz has developed internal whirling, a process to cut long internal threads without tilting the tool at helix angle. The method utilizes the bore to support the carbide or CBN cutting tool for extremely accurate profiles and overall geometries. This special purpose machine, model LWN-120-IW, has high frequency oscillation to cut threads with high helix angles and/ or multiple starts. Give us a call or send us an email with your specific application, we know you will be impressed with this outstanding machine's capabilities.
